CAIRO (Reuters) -- Israel and Palestinian armed groups have agreed a truce to end the Gaza conflict, an Egyptian official told Reuters on Wednesday.

The official who declined to be named said the announcement would come shortly. Egyptian state TV had earlier said a news conference would be broadcast from the presidency shortly.
